    Ferry Trip To Bobbin Head

    by Mikebb Updated May 6, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We caught the ferry from Patonga Beach jetty at 11:30am for the 45km return cruise to Bobbin Head. It was a beautiful April day, blue sky and sparkling water with plenty of activity on the waterway during this Easter holiday period.

    The waterway is surrounded by National Parks which remain untouched except for several service areas and some developments prior to the land being gazetted National Parkland. Since the area was gazetted National Parkland the Government has purchased most private landholdings and returned to national park.

    We arrived at the Bobbin Head park at 12:50pm where we stopped for an hour for lunch. A most popular picnic and recreational parkland located in the northern suburbs of Sydney.

    Several opportunities for lunch at the restaurant, hotel, or takeaway restaurant. Make certain you return to the ferry within an hour as there is no other public transport to and from Bobbin Head. Private cars have access to Bobbin Head on a sealed road.

    The Ferry departed Bobbin Head at 1:45pm and arrived Patonga Beach jetty at 3pm.

    A most enjoyable day.

    Beautiful Patonga Beach has been the home for some professional fishing boats since we first visited the village 40 years ago. I recall my mother buying prawns from the fishermen and i guess this may no longer happen with all the regulations that now control professional fishing.

    I guess the local storemight have fresh seafood for sale.

    The hotel is the mainstay of the lcal and holiday community. It has a very nice beer garden looking out over the beach and meals are available.

    Next to the hotel is is a general store which also provides take away meals.A good place to buy water and snacks to take on the ferry.
